"The Frontier"

In the months following the destruction of Romulus the Federation found itself under attack by members of the Kzin Consortium. Although technically winners of this 'mini war', outer areas of the Federation continue to be plagued with small incursions and pirate activity. The area known as the Frontier, never known as the most lawful region of space to begin with, has become even more dangerous than ever. Pirate groups once thought to be all but eradicated once again work their territory with a ferociousness never seen before. Black market camps operate in open defiance of the law. Weapons, drugs, slaves...nothing is off limits.

And why should it be? For them the way is wide open. So many ships were destroyed during the war that the majority of them operate in the inner core of the Federation. The fringes are mainly on their own. In an effort to try to bring some semblance of order back to these areas, Starfleet had dispatched a few select Capital ships to operate in these areas...Alone. For there were not enough ships or crew to return a full scale presence to these areas. So they did what they could, and not always completely within the rules. For out there, it truly is survival of the fittest. When this failed, they essentially left the region to what few permanent forces were left there, which is comprised of Starbase 80, the stations garrison ships and craft, and a scattering of untouched resupply bases and stations scattered around the Frontier. So far the resupply network was hands off for the pirates and black market dealers, but for how long...who knows.

We invite you to come and join us as we work to once again bring peace and order to the Frontier. Many adversities await us, but we will respond to them as one crew...one voice. Above all, we will represent both our station and ourselves in the Starfleet tradition of excellence.

The Federation Response Force (FRF) is a high readiness and technologically advanced force comprising of engineering, ground, air, water, space, and special forces units capable of being deployed quickly on operations wherever needed. The Starfleet Corps of Engineers plays a major roll in these operations, taking on tasks ranging from repairing critical infrastructure destroyed or disrupted by both man-made and natural incidents, to major starship repairs at the Docks.

The original FRF tasks as denoted by their Charter:

- The FRF is certified by the Federation Council and Starfleet to perform a wide variety of tasks including: providing an immediate response capability for conducting collective defense of Alliance members in the event of an Article V operation;
- crisis management operations;
- acting as the initial force deployment as a precursor to deployment of a much larger force;
- peace support operations;
- disaster relief;
- protection and re-construction of critical infrastructure.

FRF structure
The FRF is comprised of five parts:
- Command and Control element based on a deployable Joint Force Headquarters;
- Corps of Engineers element;
- Logistics Mobility Command element;
- Immediate Response Force (up to 25,000 land, air and space-borne forces provided by Starfleet);
- Response forces Pool (additional troops when necessary).

Starbase 80 is also home to the Marine's 7th Rapid Reaction Corps.

» Position Change and New Mission

Posted on Sat Aug 29th, 2020 @ 9:54pm by Captain Kathleen O'Shea in Sim Announcement

First off I am happy to announce that Lieutenant Grayson Jones has been assigned to the position of CAG for the 220th. Sadly Adria has not indicated that she wishes to return. We bid her fair winds. She was an amazing person to write and create with.

Our new mission is titled 'The Black Rose of Winter's Embrace', and will take us to 'visit' an Orion mining colony in our own unique way (AKA blowing stuff up). This will be two teams, one on station and one on mission, which we will be using one of the new Ronin Class starships that are garrisoned at SB80. This mission is going to be full of surprises, and I promise you the ending will be a surprise to all.

Getting ready to jump off soon folks, so get ready!

So I have arrived on starbase 80, the place is huge. I arrived a few days ago and got settled into my quarters, not as big as the ones on earth but hey starbases like ships have limited space for everyone they have to fit onboard.

Three years. It sounds longer than it is. Thirty seven months. That makes it sound longer. One thousand, one hundred and twenty four days… OK, maybe it was quite a long time. It’s irrelevant… it wasn’t long enough.
